Life, as a series of stages, is much like a carousel, with endings bluring into beginnings. Carol Comune uses this thought to set her musical journey in motion on Carousel Classics. Classical material, as well as a movie theme and a folk song, blend perfectly with her original compositions to evoke fond memories of the past and stimulate thoughts of joyous adventures yet to come. This album also boasts a concert hall-like sound, resulting from the 100-year-old church it was recorded in, thus allowing her piano, with piccolo trumpet violin, and string quartet accompaniment to ring remarkably true.
